The Ins and Outs Of Veteran Addiction

Unique Challenges Faced by Veterans

Veterans often face a range of challenges that can lead to substance abuse, including:

PTSD and Trauma: Many veterans experience post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) due to their service. This condition can lead to severe anxiety, depression, and nightmares, often driving individuals to self-medicate with drugs or alcohol.

Transition to Civilian Life: The shift from military to civilian life can be jarring. Veterans may struggle with finding a new career, establishing a support network, or coping with the loss of military camaraderie.

Mental Health Issues: Anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues are prevalent among veterans. Without proper treatment, these conditions can lead to substance abuse as a coping mechanism.

The Importance of Specialized Treatment

Veterans require specialized addiction treatment due to their unique experiences and needs. At 12 South Recovery, our programs are designed to address these specific challenges, providing a supportive and understanding environment for healing.

Our Comprehensive Treatment Programs

Detoxification (Detox)

What is Detox?

Detoxification is the first step in the recovery process, aimed at safely managing withdrawal symptoms when stopping drug or alcohol use. For veterans, this phase is crucial to cleanse the body and prepare for further treatment.

Our Approach:

  • Medical Supervision: Our detox program is medically supervised to ensure safety and comfort.
  • Personalized Care: Each veteran receives a tailored detox plan based on their specific substance use and medical history.
  • Supportive Environment: We provide a compassionate and supportive environment to help veterans through this challenging phase.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

What is IOP?

Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is designed for veterans who need structured support while maintaining their daily responsibilities. This program offers flexibility and comprehensive care.

Our Approach:

  • Therapeutic Sessions: Veterans participate in individual and group therapy sessions to address the root causes of addiction.
  • Skill Building: We focus on building coping skills, stress management, and relapse prevention strategies.
  • Community Support: Veterans benefit from the support of peers who understand their experiences, fostering a sense of community and belonging.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

What is PHP?

The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) offers intensive treatment for veterans who require more support than IOP but do not need 24-hour residential care. This program bridges the gap between inpatient and outpatient care.

Our Approach:

  • Comprehensive Care: PHP includes daily therapy sessions, medical monitoring, and holistic treatments.
  • Holistic Therapies: We incorporate therapies such as yoga, meditation, and art therapy to promote overall well-being.
  • Family Involvement: We encourage family participation to strengthen support systems and facilitate healing.

Aftercare Services

What is Aftercare?

Aftercare services are essential for maintaining sobriety and preventing relapse after completing primary treatment. Our aftercare program provides ongoing support and resources for veterans.

Our Approach:

  • Continued Therapy: Veterans continue with individual and group therapy sessions to address ongoing challenges.
  • Support Groups: Regular support group meetings offer a platform for sharing experiences and gaining insights.
  • Relapse Prevention: We focus on developing robust relapse prevention strategies tailored to each veteran’s needs.
